Yes

Allah is the same God as the God of the Bible

God is God. People just perceive him differently. There are some differences between how Muslims and Christians perceive their given God, but I think they are both talking about the same entity.

Jehovah is moon god too ( to read please click the link : Jehovah and his Mission)
AHIH, Allah and Jehovah are the components of Elohim. Elohim is the unspecific name of this holy unity.

At this point, we need some help of Buddha and here just like Buddha said:
“In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west; people create distinctions out of their own minds and then believe them to be true.”

The most convenient aspect of this discussion is that if people can disagree and everyone find logical reasons to say the whole concept of a god is flawed then they never have to accept being told what to do or risk being judged when they fail to do so.  Believers - ALL believers, regardless who they choose as god - at least are willing to admit there is a power greater than themselves.  If a god asks you to harm then it is evil.  If it asks you to forgive and love your enemy, I'd say that's the God I want to follow the best I can.

  We've cast the world, we've set the stage,
  for what could be, the darkest age...

Surah Fussilat Ayaat 37.



And of His signs are the night and day and the sun and moon. Do not prostrate to the sun or to the moon, but prostate to Allah , who created them, if it should be Him that you worship.

I'm sure there is a mosque nearby where many of you live. Do try to visit it and find an answer instead of shooting around " I think" and " my opinion is " so freely with such topics.

Supposedly, Allah is the same God that wrote the Bible.

Muslims and Christians also supposedly serve the same God, but we don't. True Christian's haven't put anyone to death in years.

Somebody who:

A: Continues to do what Christ assigned us to do, which is preach God's Word door to door. ~ Matthew 24: 3-14


B: Studies God's Word/Law, the Bible. ~ 2 Timothy 2:15


C: Doesn't worship symbols, like the cross. Jesus told us Himself not to worship Idols. ~ Acts 17:29-30


D: Undergoes an immersion baptism, as God wants us to choose to serve Him.


E: Practises what is good in Jehovah's eyes. ~ Psalm 1:1-3


F: Cultivates fruitage of the Spirit: Selfless Love, Long-Suffering, Peace, Kindness, Self-Control, Goodness, Joy, Faith, Mildness. For against such things, there is no law. ~ Galatian's 5: 22-26


I think there are more, but they're some of the most important indications. I'm being taught by the Jehovah's Witnesses, myself.

Peace and take care.

I appriciate your answer however I dissagree that we worship different gods.
But, then, as I always say, you are right in your belief and I am right in my belief. The differences should point out our commonalities rather then our differentiations.
You too take care.
Thanks again.

Good God! Get over it already.
It's not "which God came first" or whatever, rather it's what doctrine believers subscribe to.

Which, by the way, can be very much different amongst religious believers proclaiming the same God.
